That's some rough weather! Failboat, were you affected by this?

Two men, aged 56 and 53, and one women, 52, fleeing from the storm died while sheltering in a garden shed in Düsseldorf, when a poplar tree collapsed on the building on Monday evening.

Emergency services were able to rescue six others from building, two of whom were severely injured.

A 50-year old cyclist in Cologne and a second cyclist in Krefeld, North Rhine-Westphalia, also died when they were hit by falling trees. A sixth person, a 49-year-old man, collapsed and died as he was clearing up storm damage in Essen.

Heavy rain, lighting and hail also caused traffic delays on the railway, motorway and airports. Düsseldorf airport closed for an hour on Monday evening due to winds of up to 150 km/h.

Maybe this is Das Failboot

An injured explorer trapped one kilometre underground in Germany’s deepest cave is in a better condition than initially thought, mountain rescuers said on Tuesday morning. He could be out by the end of the week.

That guy is zweiundfünfzig though according to the article, but Failboat may have lied about his age. 13.gif

I've often wondered why we hardly ever hear anything about severe weather in Europe while within the United States its a constant struggle and a daily occurrence all over the place...
